Sweet Gum

The prickly brown fruit, found in so many childhood memories and backyards, reveals a little nostalgia and lot of texture. Carving away the spike forms reveal a comb structure. We continue sanding to find the smooth circular center and slice the seed across to create a planar floral pattern. The result is an interesting re-imagination of childhood curiosity transformed into sophisticated wears.
